The civil official at a wedding (the person legally conducting the ceremony) is the registrar. If you marry in church in a country which allows the combination of the civil and religious ceremony the priest is also the registrar. To be legal the marriage register has to be signed and witnessed and a marriage certificate issued. The registrar is responsible for this and for getting the bride, groom and witnesses to sign the register. The people helping the ceremony proceed (from the two families) are called the Ushers.

Civil marriages are the only type of legal marriage in Turkey. However, you can have a religious ceremony, but that alone is not a legal marriage.The only type of marriage that is legal in Turkey is a civil marriage. You may have a religious ceremony, but it has no legal standing in the country.

A civil marriage ceremony is not performed by any member of the clergy. It is performed by a judge, justice of the peace or some other public official who is authorized to perform marriages under statutory law. Remember that marriage is a civil union that bestows special legal rights under civil law. In the United States, licensed clergy are allowed to perform the marriage but the parties must obtain a civil marriage license and register the marriage with the civil authorities. The member of the clergy who performs the ceremony must sign the marriage license.

More to the point is that the marriage is not valid without a valid civil marriage license issued by the local town, city or county clerk and unless the marriage is solemnized by an official sanctioned by the state to solemnize marriages. A marriage ceremony in the United States without a marriage license doesn't accomplish anything. The couple would noit be legally married.
